You can see the same flashes when the first tower collapses, you have to watch the video to really appreciate them but they look the same, apart from
the fact that due to the second tower blocking the view of the first, you only see the reflections of the material falling to the sides, not in front
to give the illusion of it coming from the building.
It occurs at 20 minutes into the video, I suggest watching it. Here are a few stills, though it does not do it justice..
During the whole video, you can also see 'detonation flashes' in the water, and around various building if you look.
At 38:09 one of the flashes clearly moves downwards, and appears to be in the area that just collapsed anyway.
At 38:02 - 38:03 you can see several 'detonation flashes' in the debris ejected from the building, as this very clear one in the still below..
Funnily enough in the edited version that was posted earlier of the detonation flashes, this section have been edited out.
You can also see flashes in areas where the building is no longer standing...
What some people are failing to appreciate is that the refelections are caused by material ejected outwards, due to the fact the camera is looking
straight on at the tower it gives the illusion that the flashes are occuring in or on the perimeter of the building when they are infact closer to the
camera and out of the building's shadow. The image above illustrates this point well as the apparant flash which is obviously no where near the
building is in apparant shadow.
If you look at the flashes you will notice that they occur in areas where there is
sunlight, as in most cases you can see either before or
after the flash the smoke in the area being lit up by the sun.
It is also interesting to notice that due to the point the new clip starts, not only does it neatly miss out the obvious flashes outside of the area
occupied by the building, but you also feel the building is wider than it is This is probably done due to the large number of flashes that occur
outside of the area occupied by the building which becomes obvious when you overlay an earlier image and see where the building was actually
Logic should dictate alone that as we can observe the same phenomenon in the first collapse where it is blatantly obivous it is reflections on debris,
that the same thing would occur during the second collapse as well.
We could do a frame by frame analysis, but it would just be a waste of time, it's extraordinarily clear what is really
being seen here. The
crafty editing of the clip showing these 'detonation flashes' says it all really.
